    What if the Axis were "the good guys"?

    How much of an impact would it have if the Axis powers were "the good guys" in World War II (as in, objectively superior to the Allies from a moral standpoint) and did not commit any of the heinous acts we remember them for today? Would this change the outcome of any campaigns, or even the war...

    Holocaust Hats

    I've noticed that many pictures of Jewish prisoners during the holocaust seem to feature them wearing hats. These hats have a variety of styles, but the most common type is featured in the picture below. I can understand the need for cold-weather hats for workers, but these hats don't seem...

    Holocaust a lie?

    A lot of many credited historians clearly claim that the holocaust happened. Ive always stood beside the fact that the winners write history, and the loser are often drawn out to be what they aren't. I most definitely believe FDR and Churchill are not the saints people claim them to be...

    The Serbian holocaust

    There have been several terrible events in the 20th century: the Armenian holocaust, the Jewish holocaust, Pol Pot, but one that never gets mentioned were the millions of Serbs gased by the Croatians. During WW2 the Serbs were our allies, and yet now we pretend to not know who they are. Why?

    0JxL1idcI8o We know Italians were in Africa during WW2, and that Italy did not have an antisemitic policy like the Third Reich had. So why did so few Jews die in Axis controlled North Africa during WW2? Was it because of the connections between Muslims and Israelite's as a elder Muslim man...
